Life Outside UD

Outside of my day to day work I enjoy exploring life on the east coast. I have especially enjoyed spending time in the Washington, DC area. I try to make it back to my home state of Minnesota 2-3 times a year to spend time with my family and time at our lake home in the north woods of MN. When I am not traveling, I enjoying going to see a good or even bad movie, spending time outside, and swimming.
